Happy Sunday!

Our Sunday always starts the same and I love our routine. We go to church to  the 8:30 service and then come home and fix breakfast. It just seems like a Sunday to me.... relaxing, after working at the Consignment Shop all week.
This weekend was no different. It has been very hot here in Swansea, IL, just a half hour away from St. Louis. I love the heat, I only wish I had my pool in Texas. I do miss it quite a bit. We did price an inground pool but I would be dead twenty years before it was paid off. They are so expensive!
So today I want to share my peaches with you. I have been giving them away all week at the shop. I wish you lived closer so you could have some. They are great! We never had a peach tree before so this is our test year. Next year they will be better! I know how to take care of our tree, now!

There are tons of them!

                                                            Yummy and Sweet!

                             If I show you our peaches I have to show you our tomatoes...

And that has me making bread....................

And that has me making pasta...........Onions, tomatoes and olives sauteed in olive oil!

           My dinner is made...........put alot of Parmesan cheese on it you you are good to  eat!

Hope you enjoyed reading about  my peaches, tomatoes and dinner. I love sharing with you. Please leave a comment. I will visit you when I can.

"The manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all." (1Corinthians 12:7)

When we minister to others through our gifts, we are tapping in to the inexhaustible energy and motivation of God. When we exercise our gift, the Holy Spirit flowes through us like at no other time. We are doing what we have been called and equipped to do. We experience an extra measure of energy and joy.

Blessings My Friend,

My First.....NOT my last!

Good Morning!
Yes, I am writing this at 8:00 this morning. I am so busy at the shop that I forget to take a breather. My poor site has been forgotten, I'm afraid. Actually I have had to let go of many things since I have opened June 2nd!

I am excited to show you this tablescape today! I had a different tablesetting already to go when this wonderful couple brought me these black dishes by Sanyo called Tuxedo. I fell instantly in love. I have never set a table with black dishes before!
This is in Sweetladyelaine's Consignment Shop at an IKEA table and chairs. Remember I am using only items in my shop which is sometimes challenging but who doesn't like a challenge.

I really enjoyed setting this table....I forgot how much fun it is for me! I would like to thank my faithful followers for visiting me even when I haven't posted!

 Thank you to Susan from Between  Naps on the Porch for hosting Tablescaping Thursday.

Blessings My Friend,
